Sat in bed last night feeling my anxiety levels creeping up and was lucky enough to notice the link at the bottom of the MPD homepage. Spent time reading and felt something just less than the normal state of panic I have been in recently. Diagnosed Sept 2013 at 42 years old, started on aspirin but platelets levels have just gone up and up, now over 1000 and symptoms worsening, tingling and deep bone pain. So yesterday consultant has suggested starting Interferon on Monday. Should have been last night but hospital medication out of date, so Monday is the day. I have two primary aged children and would just like to hear form anyone with advice for coping emotionally and carrying on with being a mum and living rather than existing in a very dark place. Thank you.
